Doin' some brewin'...

Fun brewin' that is, check it out...

I haven't finished the inside of the card but I am thinking of putting "for your birthday" or "on your birthday," what do you think? 

Card deets: 

  • Stamps: Heart 2 Heart Mini #1 from Papertrey Ink, saying from a*muse
  • Paper: Kraft, Red, Cryogen White & Cosmo Cricket (I think)
  • Inks: Riding Hood Red & Tuxedo Black
  • Misc: PTI Die (coffee cup)



- I am trying my hand at some new "Low Carb" recipes today. I made a Low Carb Cheesecake with a crust made out of Pecans and I plan on making some Zuchinni noodles with a Low Carb Alfredo sauce for dinner. I am pretty stoked with the results so far. 

- Laundry is well under way & almost done. Thank goodness! I still don't understand how two people can have SO MUCH laundry. I can't imagine what it would be like if we added a kid to the mix.

 - Robert got Libby to swim on her own today in the pool. It was ahhh-mazing!! I am so bummed my niece, Audrey, wasn't here to see it. We tried so hard to get Libby to swim on her own during her time here and then Robert plays in the play with her for an hour & gets her to do it? BUMMER.   

- I made a couple of cute cards today and am getting ready to make a couple of more. I can't wait to share them with you!!

All right, I guess I better hit the road. I have to get dinner started before

Any who, thanks for stopping by!!


Things are just Ducky around here

Yep, they certainly are. And here is a cute card I made out of scraps to prove it...

You can't help but fall in love with Mallary from Rosie's Roadshow. Or any other stamp from RR. I mean seriously. I see RR stamps & immediately need to have them all. I don't know how Linda keeps coming up with all these cute images but they suck me in, time after time. Sigh...

Card Deets: 

  • Stamps: All from Rosie's Roadshow
  • Paper: Farmhouse from Crate Paper & Red
  • Inks: Tuxedo Black & Copic Markers
  • Misc: Ribbon, Sewing Machine, White Tag & Tiny Brad



I was an over-acheiver this week. I cleaned half of the house on Thursday night & cleaned the rest last night. I can't tell you what a huge relief it is not to have that hanging over my head this weekend. I feel so relaxed. All I have to do is laundry & a few errands and I am FINISHED. So exciting! We are even going to take in a movie this weekend: 


I can't wait. I love Jeremy Renner. Don't get me wrong, Matt Damon is one of my all time FAVES but I am looking forward to seeing this spin off. Will let you know how it is. 

All right, I am going to get. I think some stamping is in order while Robert takes a little siesta & then I am off to the races. 

Have a SUPER day! And hey, thanks for stopping by!!



Historic vehicle?

So... I am driving home tonight and see this Honda CVCC in front of me. I can't help but think fondly of my old Honda CVCC I had in high school. It looked almost exactly like this except it was brown, had regular tires and the windows weren't tinted.

Anywho...I take a look at the license plate on the car in front of me and it hits me that it's a Historic Vehicle plate. What the heck? Are you kidding me? I started laughing and then a thought almost made me choke....

Does this mean I am historic too??? LOL

See what I mean? It really IS time to head for the deep end! 

I think that's a wrap for now. I need to go find a cool place to relax. See you all later!

Happily Ever After...

I was commissioned to make a wedding card for a friend at work. The young couples colors were a lime green (almost neon) and pink. I did the best that I could to match it, here's the card I made...

I have a tiny little stash of Lucious Lime left from FOREVER AGO... so I used that and Pink Passion to whip together this card. 

Card Deets: 

  • Stamps: Mixed Bouquet from SU! & saying from a*muse
  • Paper: Lucious Lime, Pink Passion & White
  • Inks: Lucious Lime & Pink Passion
  • Misc: Ribbon, Nesties & Stickles

I was pretty pleased with the end result. YEAH! 



I have been completely & utterly LAZY this weekend! I spent all day laying around & reading yesterday (plus a couple of hours this morning). My friend Esther informed me that I HAD TO read "The Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness. O...M...G!!!! Loved it!!

I already started the second book "Shadow of Night" (so friggin' excited!!!). If you like witches, vampires, etc, you will definitely need to add these books to your reading list!

Alright, I am off to watch a movie with my hubby. 

Have a great night & thanks for stopping by!!!


I have a Big Annoucement...

Are you ready for this? I sure hope so! Ü

I signed up as an AMUSE Consultant. Crazy, huh? I know. I never thought I would do this again after almost 15yrs as a SU! demo (I resigned last year and yes, I was in the closet. LOL) but...the time & price was right. I am pretty stoked.

That being is the first day for...
